Syrian military helicopters dropped more "barrel bombs" on the northern city of Aleppo Sunday, a monitoring group said, bringing the death toll to well over 100 people in the latest episode of a campaign that many consider a war crime.Amateur videos posted online by opposition media activists showed scenes of panic from aerial bombardments – 36 people were killed Sunday while 90 casualties were reported Saturday by the Observatory.The strikes also targeted a headquarters of the Al-Qaeda-affiliate the Nusra Front in Aleppo, and killed eight of the group's fighters, the Observatory said. ISIS freed more than 400 people from a prison in the area who had been held by the rival Islamist Tawhid Brigade unit, and clashes between the two groups continued nearby, according to the monitoring group.And in Aleppo, a twin car bomb attack widely blamed on ISIS by both pro- and anti-Al-Qaeda activists targeted a headquarters of the Tawhid Brigade and killed senior leader Adnan Bakkour, said Rami Abdel-Rahman of the Observatory. As the conflict has raged on, ISIS has retaken some areas.
